Bachelor's Degree: Elementary Education ESOL
I am excited to be returning for my fourth year as a Moncure Bear! This year I begin a new journey as the Focus Teacher.
Thirteen years ago, after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, I began my teaching journey as a Rundle Cardinal in Las Vegas, NV. During those 5 years, my focus was on differentiating my teaching practices to meet the needs of all my learners. A unique job opportunity for Mr. Wahl brought us to Virginia. The next stop on my journey was teaching 5th grade, as a Belvedere Bulldog in Fairfax County. My position was with Advanced Academic students in a Primary Years Programme International Baccalaureate school.
I have the great joy of being a mom to two adorable daughters, Avery (7) and Morgan (3 1/2). The Wahl girls love exploring parks in search of painted rocks, dancing and gymnastics and singing along to the radio. Family is very important to me, therefore the smiling faces of Avery, Morgan and Mr. Wahl fill my room. My roots are deeply rooted in Wisconsin. I will be cheering for the Green Bay Packers and the Wisconsin Badgers this football season!
